OMG, OWLS! The Celebrated Standing Owlet of San Francisco County: Our Great Horned Owl Family at Stow Lake

Monday, April 11th, 2011

In compliance with the request of a friend of mine who wrote me from the East, I ascended Stow Lake’s Strawberry Hill* the other day to photograph with my iPhone** the Famous Great Horned Owl Family of Stow Lake 2011.

Thusly.

Oh, what’s that, you want to see some good photos instead? Well how about this one from Glenn Nevill’s 500mm 4.0? Or this set from Mark Brunig? And here’s the TowheeBlog.

O.K., Bon Courage, owls!

*Did Strawberry Hill get its name before it became an island? I think so. It must have, actually.

**Just kidding – I’d never buy an iPhone. But thanks for waiting in line and paying $600 and an extra $30 a month to T and putting up with T’s spotty coverage over the years. My 4G Samsung’s all the better for it, early adopter.
